Top 20 Toshiba e740 Pocket PC Questions & Answers


My suggestion would be to hook it up to an external monitor and see what happens during the boot, if you get a screen showing up there then your screen is damaged, if not then you may have other problems, for instance if the power cable was in at the time, then the power connector is easily broken. When dropping a laptop, many problems can be created, including damaged hard drive to name one. You need a repair centre that has the correct diagnostic tools to find the problem. Keeping in mind the fix may not be worth the cost as these are so cheap these days.

Try going to the website of your Operating System (ie, Windows, Mac, ect). I've only used Windows , butsee if you can download the Activesync software that you need there. The e740 was only available with Windows Pocket PC 2002, and will appearantly not sync to Vista PCs, however.
I will try to check back in a day or two, so let me know if this is of any help to you.

Could be a failing touch screen. Have you tried a reset ? You may lose data in memory though.

Power off the system and wait a few seconds to make sure that hard drive has spun down.

Hold down the "Backspace" key while powering on system.

The following message should appear:
Warning: Can't restore Hibernated State.

Press any key to continue.

After pressing a key on the keyboard, the system will continue with the boot process and the hibernation/standby mode will be by-passed.

Are you using a headphone or the Pda's speaker?

The speaker could be damaged or disconnected - try connecting a headphone to the Pda to see if the sound works.

Hi, I noticed that the firmware that you have is not the latest, the last provided was 1.0623.049 which was released a few years ago. I would install this, in addition to the other patches from the Toshiba web site. Hopefully this will overwrite any software quirks for you. regards, Keith
